dinner. please, have mercy, they begged. on the street, we meet four boys. they ask if we think it is safe enough for them to go back home. they talk of tanks firing, and seeing other children lose limbs. they say, what they have witnessed have made them all decide to be doctors. to save the victims of war. >> all right, thank you very much, that was cnn's arwa damon reporting from war-torn aleppo, syria. >>> and attackers beg released from duty, often times without prosecution, we'll discuss this disturbing situation straight ahead, but first. >>> a navy seal leaves the service, but still feels a call to serve, now he feels the need to help. >> for me being in the military was one of the greatest experiences of my life. because i was working with incredible men and women, dedicated to serving a purpose larger than themselves. when i served, i did four deployments overseas. in 2003, i came back from a last deployment in iraq, coming back from the al-qaeda targeting cell. when i came home i went to bethesda naval hospital to visit with the returning marines. i asked each of the v
it was deeply emotional reaction to the war in iraq. he begged for the military and american public forgive him. a reporter tweeted out a short while ago, despite the backlash, white house is going to have him in appearance on the 21st6 december. quite incredible how much offense he has caused but free speech and all of that. back to you. >> heather: thank you very much. we appreciate it. what do you think. >> gregg: alan simpson does a better version of that. >> heather: i want to see your version before the show is over. >> i'm going to sing shebang in honor of william hung, third season of american idol. it is a rule of life sometimes you have to adjust after hurricane sandy damaged thousands of homes. victims are copying or some of the volunteers. we're going to show you where. >> heather: plus there it is no ordinary stroll in the park. not at all. it's been 40 years since someone set foot on another world. the last new moon walker sits down with us. >> i was strolling on the moon one day ♪ in the merry, merry month of may ♪ ♪ when much to my surprise ♪ a pair of burning eyes it's
from the talks. looks like we are going over the cliff. >> that begs the question if there is reid mcconnell deal in the senate. some discussion it would probably include an extension of tax rates for most americans. extension of unemployment benefits. possibly a measure to prevent the scheduled cut in medicare payments to doctors. how will the house respond to any senate deal? >> i think if mcconnell is onboard he will bring a lot of republican votes. the democrats are by and large if the president supports it they will back their president. there could be enough votes in the house, speaker john boehner talked about amending that bill. i think if it gets a 70 to 30 senate vote i think i it get te votes in it the house to pass but it might not happen until after january 3, january 4. >> i want to ask you about what ed henry was just reporting. president obama says either a deal is reached or you vote on the short-term stop gap measure. if republicans fail to pass it i'm summarizing it's their fault. so the president kind of tossing the ball into the republican's camp, placing blame
no to guns in the past. but adam lanza had not beg your pardon to a shooting rain in the recent sixes. commupt college. apparently adam lanza was spart should and attending community college and looked in to the possibility of going to school. she wanted to go with him to make sure he ghot the education. >> here in the community. they are trying to get the children back to classes, particularly the ones on the day of the class cure. nwe are standing on the edge of the street in sandy hook elementary and looks like will take them and put them in a nearby school in monroe. >> it is closed in the last year and ready to be filled again. we watched the movie vans taking the supplies and decks and set up a community school in mon monroe. >> is there any information on where the killer was on thursday through monday of last year. >> i hear he might have gone to the range. why was he at it coming up to the killing spree. nthere is information on adam lans a. and there is information about nancy lads lads. but.s have said very little. there are so many inunanswered questions. >> and of course.
the security demands were being begged for? >> well, i think it is going to be three areas that she is going to face questions on the benghazi issue. the first is going to be, was she aware of the deteriorating environment and did she know there were cans for more security that were then denied? so did she know what the accountability review board releases last week in their findings blamed on midlevel officials, did it get up to her? that is the first question. the second thing people will want to know why didn't she testify? why didn't she go on the sunday shows like susan rice. >> she was tired. >> i mean, i think they're going to ask her about that. did she agree with the talking points? did she agree with what the is ambassador to the united nations said? i think finally, i think they're definitely going to ask hillary clinton about not just what the environment was like in the run-up to benghazi, but i think they're going to ask her, was she trying to normalize the u.s. posture in libya overall so there wasn't as much military? and why did she want to do that knowing that the situation
. at one point almost begging her to stay alive. >> harris: help was on the way but we know 22-year-old kassandra is fading quickly. >> does she hear what you are saying. >> yes. >> oh, god. >> is she bleeding? >> yes, she is. >> harris: she did not survive. belcher's mom said today her son's girlfriend was like a daughter to her. she also said she loves her son despite what he did. some of belcher's teammates and coaches attending a closed memorial service for him today in kansas city. the top court in the land today hearing arguments on a custody battle involving a five-year-old child. a u.s. soldier and his scottish wife who immigration officials deported nearly 2 years ago. the ruling could have an enormous impact on u.s. military families around the world. here is what happened. army sergeant jeffrey chaffen and his wife separated back in 2010. each tried to win custody of their little girl. last year a federal appeals court awarded custody to the mother. the court ruled scotland was the child's questions habitual residence citing international treaty to prevent abductions to o
beg with the court not to incarcerate them. what happens? you spend time in jail and you pay the fine. but you are fault a corporate client. you are an individual. >>shepard: the money they made for profit was $2.5 billion in the last quarter. the fine is $600 million less than that. the people who are sitting on this side of the aisle on this side of the border there, and are seeing what this corruption has done and what it has done to the nation over time we are supposed to say well, they made them pay $1.9 billion and no one is going to jail? i cannot imagine too many are happy about this. >>guest: i don't think so. the in edge for corporate america is commit your crime and as one put it, better to seek forgiveness than ask permission. that is what they are doing, seeking forgiveness after the fact. again, if this was an individual, they would be sitting in front of a federal district court judge probably incarcerated awaiting sentencing. >>shepard: but, instead, their stock is up today. thank you. >> police say there is no question, a murder on a crowded street in the middle of th

it will be the president. >> lou, it is my responsibility beg sent by my constituents and given hon tor serve to make sure i protect them as much as a come and that is really what i will do, we know that raises taxes, especially when the economy is so dficult. an we could potentiallygo into anothe reaction, lose more jobs, see a decrease in the aim ofevenue, by the way, talking about a spending problem we had in dc we're in a revenue situation up to historical average, and almost back to 18% of gdp and our revenue collection that tells you we have a spending pblem here in in town. lou: there has never been doubt here. and we are keenly aware that your constituents sent the ight 57 to represent them, congresswomadiane black thank you. >> thank you, lou. lou: we'll have much more on the stalemate, the impa, the obama-boehner standoff, and the country's thrift for leadership on these issues, budgets, taxation, economic growth,. here tonight. >> finally official report on benghazi, and it is a white wash. >>murder of four americans, including the killing of our ambassador in benghazi, formally no one's fault
that need to be carried out. we very much agree with the impetus of your question. >> it begs the question of why did that happen? obviously a lot of time is a factor. clearly no specific follow-up overtime. one of the major recommendations was a bill the plan, which fell off from 10 buildings to three, tied to budget constraints. so i think it was a combination of factors. while 1999 is certainly close to this decade, the world has changed dramatically. risks associated with that world are -- we are in a much more difficult and challenging position with respect to meeting the needs to be out there and is engaged in doing so in a way that our people are very specifically secure. >> there is a specific recommendation for a 10-year program at a specific level of funding specifically to meet the point that admiral mullen made that the building program has fallen off any took about to the original target. >> your report was extremely critical of the performance of some individuals and the diplomatic security, but these pierrots do not exist in a vacuum. they are part of a hierarchical organiza
today as well as tomorrow, janine de la vega ktvu channel 2 morning news. >>> and they are begging for toy donations and we have up to 1,000 kids who still need toys. a lot of people need help. are you still tracking that fire in san francisco? >> that's right, it is a two- alarm fire and this fire was reported first about an hour and a half ago. fire crews arrived on the scene and one thing we do know is that the muni line, the streetcar is blocked because of fire equipment and they have a bus bridge set up in this area. if you take the observe then view, you might be delayed this morning. let's look at the commute on the east shore freeway. it is crowded as you head to the toll plaza. northbound 280 looks good getting to the west valley. let's go to mark. >>> livermore, last hour is 29 right now warming to 30 degrees and san jose as janine de la vega mentioned, we are currently in the upper 30s and here is the latest on storm tracker 2, some showers to the north and forecast shows skies will be dry out there today, we do have a chance of a few north bay showers. as far as winds,
begs you to ask the question, what else does he say and do that would be deceptive? i believe it's many, many things that he would say and do being deceptive. >> it certainly is curious. there were two letters sent by secretary of state late last night to the chairman of the two former relations committee in the house and the senate and she talks about how immediately, their eyes are on al qaeda. if their eyes were on al qaeda, what in the world did this video stuff come up with? the president, ambassador and president on "the view." what in the world were they trying to do with the video business? >> bottom line, during the campaign in the final day, barack obama wanted to keep that false narrative alive that he, mr. nobel peace prize-wing president of ours -- he pretty much quashed the terrorists' activities, if you will, of the islamic countries that he was able to reach out and -- kind of stem the tide of -- that hatred and the violence coming from some of these countries as it pertained to relationships with americans. and that's not true. they even told americans that al qaeda was
done today and over the weekend, nothing for the house to vote on, which begs the question, if we go over the cliff, which it appears likely, what next? >>guest: the i.r.s. has postponed the withholding tables so we have a few more days. but the senate has not pass add budget in 1,341 days. i did not expect them to work quickly today but hopefully they can put something out that includes spending cuts because that is the problem. we have the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling and again, that remains a problem and any deal that ignores spending is no real solution and just punts and makes it more difficult down the road. >> how do you get leverage negotiating around the debt ceiling, it is the second time in two year we have blown past the ceiling but no one cares? there is no leverage? >>guest: the bad debt deal creates the situation today 17 months ago and we will face that again in a couple of months but i hope, the last thing remembers want to do is have any say on the potential deal. we will hear the details in the next couple of hours and get final details out to us but it looks
, is begging for money. -- that great project, is begging for money. this is the sort of thing that ought to be supported by the u.s. government. the final thing we need to do in terms of non state actors, al qaeda came closest to developing wmd when they were in control of territory in afghanistan. we have to keep groups like that from getting a base. >> chemical, i wonder if you could talk a little bit about nuclear terrorism. >> again, i am a scientist. i think it is a very small probability. i reject the idea of 1% or 50%. the chance of fukushima happening was less than 1%. it is a low probability, but a horrific consequences. i think if proliferation happens, as nuclear capabilities bread, you'll have more of the wherewithal for terrorists to exploit and therefore more opportunities. i would like to emphasize what was said, you have to deny the territory. that is the lesson in afghanistan. you don't want to give these people time and space to work on these kind of weapons. with that being said, if you look at sudan, somalia, a couple of places, is not an easy thing to accomplish. and
's hopes up because it's just so deflating when nothing happens. but at this point, we're just begging the mexican government. >> hammer is charged with a felony for allegedly bringing in a weapon across the border without any permits right into violence-plagued mexico. his trial date is scheduled for next month. >> john: we've got christmas coming up if a week. what are the chances he could be back in florida by then? >> his mexican attorney believes there is a good chance he has filed two federal injunctions and he hopes a court will rule in their favor, perhaps by thursday. meanwhile, the mexican ambassador to the united states sent this letter to miami congresswoman which reads, quote: i must underscore that introducing to and/or possessing weapons of this kind of mexico, regardless of intent, is considered a serious offense. he was caught at the bordered with a shotgun in his winnebago which his family says was for bird hunting. but the gun may have ban sawed off shotgun and too short. the veteran has been locked up since this happened in august. mexican authorities say the only

? >> right, which begs the question, why give any power to the united nations? let me tell you, carol, i served as ambassador to the united nations human rights. it's a bureaucratic organization with very little teeth, very little fang and ability to enforce anything. some people had concerns about not wanting to give authority to the united nations and rather keep it as a sovereign issue. i think it's a culpable concern. >> if they don't have any teeth to impose this treaty in the united states, what difference does it make? >> that's exactly right. that's the problem with the arguments that republicans are making. i understand that people like rick santorum, who does have a disabled child, they feel very strongly about this. even in the arguments he is making, he contradicts himself, as most republicans did yesterday, in saying that this treaty has no teeth and it can't be enforced. and at the same time saying by signing it you give up american sovereignty. those are two contraaddictry statements right there. it is a huge perception of the united states and frankly to the chagrin or wh

evaluating the security laps at the state department, people in benghazi at the mission were begging for more execute and did not get it. what do you take away from this? >> well, the first thing is we have a report that took care of all the under links but did not answer the fundamental questions but they will not be held into account until secretary secretary of state testified. but she is recovering from the concussion. but it needs to be but we need john kerry to be announced, and you do not move forward on his nomination to be secretary of state until the country secretary of state has testified under oath about what happened. >> something the report doesn't answer is who refused the pleas for help and a rescue in a seven hour long siege and what investigative body is going to be asking that question of administrators under oath? this is what the not will not do. maybe the house of representatives will. we are now three months since this happened. >>gregg: general petraeus said the c.i.a. did not refuse the request so that means that "obama's fingerprints are all over this." >> we don't
